Walking in Nature, Eating Healthy, Being Creative
... and having fun with other people. We know these things make us healthier, happier humans. Whether you're visiting the region and want to experience its unique culture beyond Washington, D.C., or you live here and just need an escape, join a HIKE day excursion or a longer adventure and retreat—and feel renewed! Come solo or coupled, with your family or friends and join one of our small groups. To keep you comfortable and well attended, our number never exceeds 12 participants on a given day excursion. Retreats and week-long adventures can accommodate larger numbers depending on client needs. All excursions are fully guided and include a variety of environmentally and historically conscious activities.
Like brisk walking, hiking is a good way to improve your cardiovascular fitness, particularly if your route includes some hills, which will force your heart to work harder.

“I usually encourage participants to sit or lie down on the forest ground and listen to the sounds,” she says. “The hypersonic natural world can be soothing, and things are always moving even while we are still. It can be very calming.”

[A] lot of research in the medical field has actually suggested that art — and, more specifically, being creative — is, in fact, quite useful for our mental and physical well-being.
